  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another person and triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.

Regardless of not sealing their relationship with a ring, a couple (heterosexual or homosexual) who have lived together on a real domestic basis for a minimum of 2 years (or less if they have a kid, registered their relationship under the law of the State or one made a significant contribution to the residential or commercial property of the other or the welfare of the family unit) are thought about to be a legal entity for the purpose of family law Birchip West.

De facto partners should not fear that they should walk away empty handed from a relationship. The Family Law Act makes special provision for the adjustment of property and financial backing, in very much the same way as a couple.
